FlinterFile: Echo & the Bunnymen- The Killing Moon
In 1984, Echo & the Bunnymen recorded one of their biggest hits. The song was inspired by several things. Firstly, Ian McCulloch (the singer) played Space Oddity by David Bowie backwards and changed it. Secondly, they got inspired by several balalaikas which were played in their hotel, with which they also played around to get the chorus. Thirdly, they had the line ‘Fate up against your will’, with which Ian woke up one morning. Together it made the song and a number 9 hit in the UK. Enjoy
